Dear Colleagues,

The Organising Committee of APMEC 2020 and the Centre for Medical Education (CenMED), Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, National University Health System, invite you to attend the Asia Pacific Medical Education Conference (APMEC) 2020 from 8 to 12 January 2020 in Singapore.

We have specially chosen our theme "Nurturing Values for Effective Practice – Trends ● Issues ● Priorities ● Strategies (TIPS)".

The practice of medicine throughout history has been characterised by dedicated physicians who went beyond their call of duty. These practitioners have been valued by patients, their families and also by the trainees whom they supervised. However, the practice of medicine has seen rapid changes not only to the way we treat diseases but also the way we engage with our patients and their relatives. This has been further complicated with the use of technology such as AI in the delivery of care and treatment. These rapid changes may have contributed to challenges in developing medical professionals with the right attributes to serve the community. The focus of the conference this year is to share and discuss how best to face these challenges and develop ways to mitigate shortcomings in educating and training the next generation of healthcare professionals. We believe that the APMEC will offer a platform to share our experiences as educators and learn from experts in medical and healthcare professional practice and education the latest ideas, and best practices adopted internationally. This is also an opportunity for participants to discuss innovative ideas and concepts in medical and health professional education with experts.

The Asia Pacific Medical Education Conference has grown and strengthened over the years. It is now in its 17th year attracting participants, not only from the Asia-Pacific region, but also from around the globe. For our APMEC 2019, we had close to 1,400 medical and healthcare professionals from over 38 countries. We hope to see an even stronger participation in 2020. As with previous APMECs, we have invited distinguished medical and healthcare professional educators to share their experiences, expertise and wisdom.

On behalf of the Organising Committee, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to join us at our conference.

I look forward to your participation and to welcoming you to the APMEC 2020 in January.

With best wishes
